This cozy two bedroom apartment is located in the heart of the "Hongdae", the most attractive area in Seoul. It offers the perfect base from which to explore Seoul!

It is an entire apartment with privacy (no share), on the 3rd floor (no elevator, stairs), and about 25sqm on which 3 guests can comfortably sleep. It has two bedrooms, a newly renovated kitchen with everything you need, and a bathroom. The place is not "big": 25 sqm = 269 sqf

The building itself is old as other buildings in this area, but I've kept the apartment very clean.
